Griffin Is Better

Griffin is running around and seems to be back to his old self again and the amazing part of it is that he didn't take his antibiotics........none of them. Even though I tried to put the powder of the capsule in some food (like chocolate pudding) he still wouldn't eat it and I tried various other foods too and he wouldn't eat any of them, not even a bite. I am so glad that he got better without the help of the antibiotics because that means that his immune system is very strong and he won't be building up a resistance to them for the future. He could have gotten the shot that lasts 10 days but the doctor didn't recommend it unless it was an emergency, he thought that Griffin's natural immunities would do the trick even if he didn't take the medicine and he was right! Now I have some kind of virus it's just a head and chest cold and I am taking Musinex which is helping me tremendously. Otherwise there isn't much to report except that the weather is divine! It is 82 degrees today and I am enjoying it as much as I possibly can like going out on the deck to read a book. I am looking forward to feeling better and taking Griffin to the playground and/or to the neighbor's house where she has a swing set so he can play. I hope that the higher temperature doesn't mean that it is going to be super hot early on this year because I am NOT looking forward to the swealtering hot/humid weather, oh well we shall see. How's the weather where you are? I hope that all of you are doing very well.

Charlie has the most amazing immune system and I am convinced that it is because he won't ever take meds. He will vomit them up at me before swallowing them.

We have only once had to resort to shots of Keflex. I hope to never need it again.

Well done on the antibiotic front - my boys had so many ear infections etc when they were little that I always worried how things would work out in the future.
Glad you're enjoying the sunshine, we are too.

that is awesome. if you think about it-have them do another strep test in a few weeks just to make sure. we thought is was gone with elliott one time and he still had it, though no symptoms. strep is wierd.

Wow- Griffin is a tough cookie!

The weather here in Ohio got nice and warm but I hate that it feels humid immediately- yuck.

Our weather has been beautiful the last two days, but out of the ordinary too. We could still get Snow here until May! Yikes.
Your weather sounds much better though! :O)
